Demon is in religion, folk legends and mythology supernatural being, sometimes God's creation. It is believed that the demon could summon and control, which is mainly achieved by magical rites.It is also often mentioned that demon 'haunting' someone or that it has entered into his body,by which is meant, that the procedures that person commits,is responsible demon or more of them, not the person.A few examples of obsession we also find in the Bible:Matthew 4:24 ,Matthew 15:21-28 ,Mark 1:25-27 ,Mark 7:24-50 ,Luke 4:51-56 ,Acts 8:7 .
In ancient Greece the word demon ( Δαίμων - the spirit) did not have a negative connotation.
By the book of Enoch,demons are the disembodied spirits of the Nephilim who are mentioned in Genesis chapter six. The Nephilim are the offspring of fallen angels and humans. The Nephilim were destroyed in the flood, yet their spirits remained on the earth.
The Book of Enoch has the following to say about them:
- "Now the giants, who have been born of spirit and of flesh, shall be called upon earth evil spirits,and on earth shall be their habitation. Evil spirits shall proceed from their flesh, because they were created from above; from the holy Watchers was their beginning and primary foundation. Evil spirits shall they be upon earth, and the spirits of the wicked shall they be called. The habitation of the spirits of heaven shall be in heaven; but upon earth shall be the habitation of terrestrial spirits, who are born on earth.The spirits of the giants shall he like clouds,which shall oppress, corrupt, fall, contend, and bruise upon earth.They shall cause lamentation. No food shall they eat; and they shall be thirsty; they shall be concealed, and shall not rise up against the sons of men, and against women; for they come forth during the days of slaughter and destruction.And as to the death of the giants, wheresoever their spirits depart from their bodies, let their flesh,that which is perishable, be without judgment.Thus shall they perish, until the day of the great consummation of the great world. A destruction shall take place of the Watchers and the impious." Enoch 15-16.
